    The only thing I could critique based on your video is your footwork. It seems that you are getting to some of the balls a bit late, which is causing you to be slightly off balanced when hitting your shot. This is a preparation problem, and can be fixed by simply making sure you stay on your toes in between balls instead of being flat footed. This is the only thing I could pick out from your video, everything else looked strong.

    One thing actually, you don't seem to have this problem on your forehand, but if you look at your finish on your backhand, you are sliding your back foot back into position while you are finishing your shot. Try to finish your stroke first before you do that, as it is going to throw off your finish when you hit a backhand. You hit with an open stance forehand, and that's fine, but with your backhand, since it is closed stance, I would try stepping into the ball more, because you don't seem to be doing that on your backhand. A good drill to practice if you have a hard time getting in the habit of this is putting a coin or other marker on the court and stepping on that with your front foot before you hit a backhand.

    I wouldn't say homework, your strokes look great and are 98% mechanically correct, it's just one very money thing. Very easy fix, nice strokes though I enjoyed watching your video you have nice form.
